Ingredients:

For the Cake:

  • All-Purpose Flour (2 cups)
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1/2 cup)
  • Baking Powder (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • Baking Soda (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • Salt (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup, softened)
  • Granulated Sugar (1 1/2 cups)
  • Eggs (3 large)
  • Vanilla Extract (2 teaspoons)
  • Buttermilk (1 cup)

For the Filling:

  • Sweetened Shredded Coconut (2 cups)
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 can, 14 oz)

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • Dark Chocolate Chips (1 cup)
  • Heavy Cream (1/2 cup)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans, ensuring easy release after baking.
  2. Sift and Mix:
    In a bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This ensures a smooth and airy texture for your cake.
  3. Creamy Foundation:
    In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened unsalted butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Alternate and Incorporate:
    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, ensuring even mixing. This step guarantees a well-balanced and moist cake.
  5. Divide and Conquer:
    Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula, creating an even surface for baking.
  6. Bake to Perfection:
    Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Filling Bliss:
    In a bowl, mix together the sweetened shredded coconut and sweetened condensed milk. This delightful filling adds a burst of coconut sweetness to each layer.
  8. Layer and Fill:
    Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one layer on a serving plate. Spread half of the coconut filling evenly over the top. Add the second layer and cover it with the remaining coconut filling.
  9. Ganache Glory:
    For the chocolate ganache, heat the heavy cream until it simmers. Pour it over the dark chocolate chips and let it sit for a minute. Stir until smooth and glossy. Drizzle the ganache over the cake, letting it cascade down the sides for a decadent finish.
  10. Chill and Serve:
    Allow the cake to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. This step enhances the flavors and ensures a perfect slice every time.
